Police have "working theory" in Barry and Honey Sherman murders

For those of you who do not know the details of the case, a full summary is pasted below this update. A quick tl;dr: billionaire and his wife are found murdered in their homes on December 15, 2017. After initially classifying it as a murdesuicide, police later reclassified it as a murder after the family hired a PI. Very little information has come out since, but the two main theories here seem to be family resentments over finances (his cousin, Kerry Winter, seems particularly unhinged during interviews, although I don't think he's involved) and a corporate hit due to Sherman's practice of undercutting major pharmaceutical companies with generic alternatives.
This update isn't very Earth-shattering, but it's the biggest development yet given the lack of information provided by police thus far. A lead investigator stated last week that police have "an idea of what happened", and the journalist who broke the story claims at least one witness is refusing to speak to the police. Other people that investigators would like to speak to cannot be located, and the police believe these folks may have fled the country. In another article (which has since been payblocked, so I didn't post the link. Any Star subscribers out there?), it is stated that the police should finally be getting access to electronic records this week which may prove helpful in the investigation.
I don't know how excited to get about this, as the investigator's words sound *very* carefully chosen. "An idea of what happened" is a far cry from "a trail of evidence leading to a suspect(s)." Obviously this doesn't help us in speculating who might be responsible, but I at least have hope that substantial developments will be revealed in the near future.



Bernard Charles "Barry" Sherman, CM[4] (February 25, 1942 – December 15, 2017) was a Canadian businessman and philanthropist who was chairman and CEO of Apotex Inc. With an estimated net worth of US$3.2 billion at the time of his death, according to Forbes, Sherman was the 12th-wealthiest Canadian.[3][5] Another publication, Canadian Business, stated his fortune at $4.77 billion (CAD), ranking him the 15th richest in Canada.[5] Sherman and his wife were murdered in their home by unknown assailants, according to Toronto Police who are still investigating the case.[6]

Early life and education

Sherman was born into a Jewish family in Toronto[7] to Herbert Dick "Hyman" Sherman (1906–1952),[8] a business partner for a zipper company,[1]and Sara "Sarah" Sherman (née Winter; 1910–1971),[9] an occupational therapist after her husband's death.[10] His grandparents from both sides had fled persecution of Jews in Russia and Poland.[1] His father died from heart attack when Bernard was still young at the age of 10.[1][11] He won a national physics contest while attending the Forest Hill Collegiate Institute and graduated with top marks.[12] He entered the University of Toronto's engineering science program at age 16, believed to be the youngest to do so.[13] The same year, he signed up for a Canadian Army organized student militia.[1] He graduated with the highest honours in his class and received the university's Governor General's Award for his thesis.[14] In 1967, he completed a PhD in astrophysics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.[15]

During high school and while at the University of Toronto, Sherman often worked for his uncle Louis Lloyd Winter, at his Empire Laboratories, then Canada's largest wholly owned pharmaceutical company.[16] When his uncle would travel, Sherman often helped watch over the operations.[14]


In 1967, after completing his PhD, Sherman purchased the Empire Group of Companies from the executor of the estate of his aunt and uncle, Beverley and Louis Lloyd Winter, as both had died seventeen days apart in November 1965, leaving four orphaned young children: Paul Timothy, Jeffrey Andrew, Kerry Joel Dexter, and Dana Charles.[14][17] Prior to the purchase, Empire was the first to secure the compulsory rights to manufacture Hoffmann-La Roche's Valium (diazepam), and was one of Canada's largest manufacturers of Pfizer's Vibramycin (doxycycline), Upjohn Company's Orinase (tolbutamide), and the dietary sweetener saccharin. To facilitate the corporate acquisition, Sherman along with his high school friend, Joel Ulster (Sherman and Ulster Limited), offered 5% equity options) to each of the four children and a 15-year royalty on four of its patented products.[18]

In 1970 he invested in New York's Barr Laboratories with US-based partners, became its largest shareholder and served as Barr's president.[19] As of 2000, he controlled about 33% of Barr Laboratories' stock. Barr won the first rights to manufacture generic versions of Eli Lilly's Prozac. Today, Barr Laboratories' is a part of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, the world's largest generic drug maker,[20] following Teva's acquisition of Barr Pharmaceuticals in 2008.[21]

In January 1972, Sherman and Ulster Limited sold Empire Laboratories to the Quebec-based Canadian operations of publicly traded International Chemical and Nuclear (ICN) of California, for 57,000 shares (Valeant Pharmaceuticals). In 1973, Sherman started Apotex with a few former Empire Laboratories' personnel and he incorporated it in 1974. This privately owned and Sherman-controlled company claims to be Canada's largest Canadian-owned pharmaceutical manufacturer.[22] Sherman also became involved in Nutraceutical manufacturing and other businesses, founding NION (National Institute of Nutrition) with Richard Kashenberg. He later sold the company to Schiff and continued on to Apotex.

By 2016, Apotex employed over 10,000 people as one of Canada's largest drug manufacturers, with over 260 products selling in over 115 countries. Revenues were about $1.5 billion annually.[23]

Personal life

Sherman married Honey Reich (1948–2017),[24] in 1971,[25] a fellow University of Toronto graduate born in 1948 (sic) in Austria to Polish Holocaust survivors.[26][27] They had four children,[28][13]a son, Jonathon, and three daughters, Lauren, Alexandra and Kaelen.[29][12]

Sherman, with his wife, donated a record $50 million to the United Jewish Appeal.[30] They provided funds to build a major addition to the geriatric Baycrest centre,[31] and to other Toronto-area community centres in Ontario.[14] The couple were also major donors to the United Way.[32] As well, the Apotex Foundation had sent over $50 million worth of medicine to disaster zones since 2007.[14][33][5]

Reputation and personality

Sherman had a mixed reputation, or what the National Post called "Two Legacies".[34] Toronto Mayor John Tory said "Barry and Honey were kind, good people" and Sherman was widely praised for his philanthropic giving.[35]

Sherman was called "a deplorable human being" in reference to his business practices, by University of Ottawa law professor Amir Attaran who claimed that he gouged Canadians with high drug prices: "Canadians pay more for generic drugs than almost every other country. He sought to manipulate our system to enrich himself and impoverish Canadian patients who used his drugs", he said.[35] He accused Sherman of crossing intellectual property right ethical lines to "fight as many as 100 battles at a time in court to challenge drug patents and make way for Apotex's generic prescriptions" with little end benefit to consumers.[35][36] As told in Jeffrey Robinson's 2001 book "Prescription Games: Money, Ego and Power Inside the Pharmaceutical Industry", Sherman himself acknowledged the long-running conflict between Apotex and the major pharmaceutical companies over drug patents, saying "The branded drug companies hate us. They have private investigators on us all the time. The thought once came to my mind: why didn't they just hire someone to knock me off?"[37]

In 2011, the Winter children (his cousins) sued Sherman alleging he never paid royalties and equity in Apotex, contending Sherman had used the proceeds from the 1972 sale of their late father's business Empire to buy Apotex in 1973.[38] The cousins sought a 20% interest in Apotex or damages of $1 billion. Sherman responded by withdrawing millions of dollars in financial assistance to his cousins. The cousins' contended that Sherman "had offered the financial assistance in the first place in order to make the cousins dependent on him, and to keep them from learning about their rights to the business", though this was denied by Sherman.[34][39][40] In September 2017, an Ontario Superior Court justice ruled against the cousins, saying the case was "wishful thinking, and beyond fanciful."[40][41] At the time of the judgement, a lawyer for the cousins said they would appeal, though no appeal occurred, and Sherman died a few months later under unknown circumstances.[40]

At the time of his death, Sherman was under investigation because of a fundraiser he had held for Justin Trudeau in April 2015, allegedly contrary to Canada's lobbying rules.[42] Sherman filed a lawsuit in May 2016, attempting to quash the investigation. "There is basis to conclude that Mr. Sherman is in breach of ... the Lobbyists' Code of Conduct as a consequence of his involvement in the organization of a fundraising event for the (Liberal Party)," according to Phil McIntosh, director of investigations at the Office of the Lobby Commissioner. If that had been proven, Sherman would have been banned from lobbying for five years.[43]

A partial draft of his unpublished memoir, called Legacy of Thoughts, was submitted as part of Sherman's motion for summary judgment in a lawsuit brought by his orphaned cousins. He described the manuscript as his observations on philosophy, Canadian politics and the pharmaceutical industry.[44] Sherman did not believe in God, free will, altruism or morality.[35] "I find no inconsistency in holding intellectually that life has no meaning, while at the same time being highly motivated to survive and to achieve", he once said.[35]

Barry Sherman was targeted by the Canadian wing of the Jewish Defense League, a group on the FBI's terrorist list, and had been sued by Israel`s largest generic-drug maker, Teva.[45][46]


On December 15, 2017, police officers were called to Sherman's home at 50 Old Colony Road in North York, Toronto, by the couple's real estate agent,[47] where they discovered the bodies of Sherman and his wife hanging side by side next to their indoor pool. The deaths are being treated as "suspicious" and the Toronto Police Service Homicide Squad has taken the lead in the investigation, because this unit is the "most experienced in dealing with sudden unexpected deaths".[48][40][33] Post-mortem examinations showed the cause of both deaths was "ligature neck compression",[49] which is ligature strangulation caused by binding or tying.[50] Ligature strangulation is usually distinguished from hanging by the strangling force being something other than the person's own body weight.[51]

Toronto Police Service had previously told the news media that there was no indication of forced entry into the Sherman home and that their investigation does not include a search for any suspects.[47] Although there was no note left by the deceased,[52] police sources told the Toronto Star on December 15 or 16, 2017, that they were "probing the possibility that they were a murder–suicide".[53] In response, the couple's four children issued a statement urging the police to conduct a thorough criminal investigation and chastised the police for leaking a murder-suicide theory.[41][54] They also contacted Toronto lawyer Brian Greenspan to retain a private investigator to look into the deaths.[55] He hired Tom Klett, a retired Toronto Police detective who has worked in the homicide, drug, and intelligence bureaus.[56] The family also hired Dr. David Chiasson, the retired chief forensic pathologist for Ontario, to conduct another autopsy.[57][58]

On January 20, 2018, the Toronto Star published an exclusive report based on anonymous sources from the family's investigation team who said that the deaths were murders: the couple was strangled by belts after their hands were tied. These investigators had not yet gained access to the Sherman home. "People providing information for this story are not identified as they were not authorized to discuss the case," according to the Star. When contacted by a reporter, a Toronto Police spokesman reiterated the position that they were treating the deaths as "suspicious".[59]On January 26, Toronto Police advised the news media that their investigation concluded that the couple had been murdered in a targeted attack.[60] At the time, they would not discuss any possible suspects, but planned to interview everyone who had access to the home prior to the deaths via the lockbox that was previously installed by the real estate agent.[6] The police investigation has encountered resistance at Apotex headquarters, with a police spokesman saying "Legal complexities in some executions have been challenging given the litigious nature of Barry Sherman's businesses, in particular the search and seizure of electronics in Barry Sherman's workspace at Apotex".[36]

The police investigation was still continuing in September 2018 when detectives obtained seven search warrants in addition to the 21 previously obtained. Detective Dennis Yim told a court that "investigators are methodically reviewing material and pursuing different investigative avenues".[61]

In late October 2018, lawyer Brian Greenspan announced that the family had offered a $10 million reward in the couple's murder investigation for any information that leads to the arrest and prosecution of a suspect. At the same time, he complained about the police investigation, claiming that it had failed to collect important evidence.[62] Police Chief Mark Saunders later told the news media that a forensic pathologist has been working on the case, in addition to over 50 officers, interviewing 200 witnesses and collecting over 2,000 hours of video surveillance from neighboring homes. When asked if police would be willing to work with the independent experts to be convened by Greenspan, Saunders replied in the positive, but only if the group would be accepted in a court proceeding.[63]

By October 2018, police had obtained 37 warrants related to the investigation.[64]

The Center of the National Interest is the Center of Trump-Russia: How Kislyak, Torshin, Butina, Burt, Kissinger, and the NRA infiltrated Trump's campaign

Richard Burt’s Russian Connections: Oleg Deripaska, Alfa-bank, Deutsche Bank
Richard Burt’s Russia connection began with his father, a Russian emigre that made a fortune mining in Siberia. Burt became a Henry Kissinger protege in his 20‘s (1), and by the late 70's joined the New York Times (2), where he published a number of leaked US security secrets. This led to a contentious nomination of Burt to US ambassador to Germany in 1985 when a number of US senators, including Orin Hatch, accused Burt of violating US espionage laws (1), though nothing came of those accusations, and his confirmation was ultimately railroaded through by Senator Majority leader Bob Dole (3). By 2004, Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska would hire both Bob Dole and Richard Burt’s Diligence to lobby on his behalf after Deripaska was banned from entering the US due to his ties with Russia organized crime (4)(5).
Another owner of Diligence was Nathanial Rothschild, business partner to Oleg Deripaska (5). The two own a major stake in Russian aluminum company, RusAl (6).
Another client of Diligence was Alfa-bank. In 2005 Diligence LLC allegedly attempted to illegally acquire information from an Alfa-bank Rival, though the case was settled out of court (7). By 2006, Richard Burt himself joined the senior advisory board of Alfa-bank (8). Alfa-bank's server was found pinging Trump Org servers regularly during the 2016 campaign, a total of 2000 times between May and September (11).
At some point Burt also joined the board of Deutsche Bank (10). Since, Deutsche bank has been caught multiple times involved in Russian money laundering schemes (12)(13).
In 1998, when no other bank would loan to Donald Trump after a string of bankruptcies, Deutsche created a brand new real estate operation and gave Trump it’s first loan of $125 million for renovation of his 40 Wall Street property, then backed the construction of his Trump World Tower (14), which ultimately sold 1/3 of its properties to Russians or limited liabilities connected to Russia (15). Other notable residents included Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who once claimed at a wedding he was part of the Russian mob (16), and Trump pollster, Kellyanne Conway, who was connected to the Tom Delay/Jack Abramoff’s Russia scandal (more on that later) (17).
In 2005, Deutsche bank loaned Trump $640 million (14). The following year Richard Burt, representing Alfa-bank, and Ron Lauder, Trump’s childhood friend, awarded Deutsche Bank for “Excellence in Foreign Investment in Russia” (9).

Richard Burt and Sergey Kislyak
In 1989, George HW Bush appointed Richard Burt as chief negotiator of the START I treaty between the US and Russia. On the other side, a little known Sergey Kislyak worked at the Soviet Union’s ministry of foreign affairs, focused on nuclear negotiations (1). On July 31, 1991, the START I treaty was signed by Russia and the United States. When START I was due to expire in late 2008, it was Kislyak hard at work re-negotiating it (2). Several current and former US intelligence agents now consider Kislyak a “top spy and recruiter of spies" for Russia (3).

Sarah Palin and Sergey Kislyak
In May 2007, Russian politician Vladimir Yetylin visited Sarah Palin in Anchorage, Alaska and invited her to Russia’s Chukotka region where Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich governed (1). Abramovich is close business partners with Oleg Deripaska (15), was one of the founders of RusAl (16), and has his own mafia connections (17).
This was not something new. In 2000 Yetylin and Abramovich visited Alaska in an attempt to recruit famed Alaska politician Victor Fishcher to govern Chuktoka, but when that failed, Abramovich took the seat himself (2)(3).
Then in January, 2008, Sarah Palin invited Kislyak to attend Alaska’s 50th anniversary since joining the US, scheduled for the following January (4).
In March, Nathanial Rothschild hosted a fundraiser for McCain’s campaign during McCain’s trip to the UK, a move many accused of violating election laws (18). McCain had met with Oleg Deripaska on several occasions by then, first introduced by Paul Manafort’s business partner in Ukraine, Rick Davis, at DeVos in 2006. In 2004 Paul Manafort had signed a contract with Deripaska to “greatly benefit the Putin Government” (21). Deripaska would later host John McCain’s 70's birthday party on a yacht off the coast of Montenegro (19).
In May, Dmitry Medvedev stepped down as head of Russian oil and gas giant, Gazprom, to head the Russian Federation as the new President. At some point Gazprom would hire Richard Burt as a lobbyist (20). In July, Medvedev appointed Kislyak Russia’s ambassador to the US (5).
That same month, July 2008 Rick Davis, chose Sarah Palin as McCain’s running make (6). Ever close to her side was Richard Burt and his wife, Gahl Hodges Burt, who was responsible for Palin’s well fitted suits (14). Richard Burt acted as McCain’s top advisor on foreign relations, a familiar role he had also fulfilled in McCain’s 2000 run.
Then, in September, Medvedev attended ELAT in Chukotka, becoming the first Russian president to visit the area, and met with Abramovich (7) and Yetlyin. During Yetlyin’s presentation at ELAT, Yetlyin “point[ed] out the best known dead caribou for many years, lying beside Alaska Governor Sarah Palin” (8). Just weeks later on Oct 13, Gazprom sent eight executives to Alaska to meet with state officials (9), including Aleksei Miller who was later sanctioned by the US for election meddling (10), and Aleksandr Golubyev, veteran FSB agent (11).
The following January, 2009, Kislyak accepted his invitation and visited Palin in Alaska (12). Five months later, Kislyak emailed Sarah Palin about meeting with what would turn out to be a Russian mob “godfather,” Alexander Torshin (13).

Kislyak, Alfa-bank, and the Center for the National Interest
Prior to being named Russia’s ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak was deputy minster of foreign affairs, working under Sergey Lavrov. Lavrov had been meeting reguarly with Donald Trumps personal lawyer and “America’s mayor” Rudy Giuliani since 2004 (1) and his son-in-law, Alexander Vinokurov sits on the board of Alfa-bank alongside Richard Burt (3). In Oct 2008, with Richard Burt present as an Alfa-bank board member, Giuliani presented the keynote speech for Alfa-bank’s “Excellence in Foreign Investments in Russia” award (2).
As recently as October 2016 Richard Burt claims to maintain a close working relationship with Alfa-banks co-founder, Mikhail Fridman (4).
The Ministry of Foreign Relations was actively linked to the Alfa-bank’s Alfa Fellowship internship program and Lavrov and Kislyak met the 2008 interns just prior to Kislyak heading to the US as the newly-appointed ambassador to the US (2).
After arriving in the US, Kislyak was welcomed with a dinner party hosted by Dmitri Simes of the Center for the National Interest, a think tank group founded by Nixon (5). Also on the board are Richard Burt and Henry Kissinger, as well as Grover Norquist (6). In 1995, Norquist worked with Tom Delay on the infamous K Street Project (7). Years later it was found Delay was bribed by Russia’s Gazrprom for his vote on an IMF bailout of the Russian economy in 1997 (8), a scandal, orchestrated by Delay’s prior aid, Jack Ambroff, that shook the US political world. Jack Ambroff’s friend, Paul Erickson of the NRA, would later “date" the notorious Russia spy, Maria Butina and assist her in infiltrating US politics (9).

In 2007 Richard Burt had left Diligence and joined his mentor, Henry Kissinger, at Kissinger McLarty & Associates (1). The following year in September 2008, “Father of the oligarchs” Anatoly Chubais joined the international advisory board of JP Morgan Chase alongside Kissinger (2).
For those unfamiliar, Chubais was responsible for bringing capitalism to Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union and worked closely with Harvard professors in the 90‘s through a group called the Harvard Institute of International Affairs, or HIID, that eventually erupted in scandal when a number of those professors were caught profitting from the very advice and direction they were giving to the Russian government (3)(4). Henry Kissinger was the founding director of HIID in 1958 (orginally CFIA), then focused on nuclear arms control theory (5).
HIID’s Andrei Shliefer worked closely with Len Blavatnik and business partner Viktor Vekselberg, helping them attain loans for investments in Russia (11). In return, Blavatnik would make investments to Shleifer in the very companies Shleifer worked to privatize (3). In 2014 Jared Kushner and Ivanak Trump partied in Moscow with both Blavatnik and Veksleberg, as well as head of Mikhail Fridman’s Letter One and Sergey Lavrov’s daugher and son-in-law (13). Both Blavatnik and Vekselberg’s cousin, Andrew Intrater, later donated to Donald Trump’s inaugural fund (12).
Just prior to joining JP Morgan, Chubais had worked from 2004-2008 breaking up and privatizing the Russian government-owned electrical giant, RAO-UES (6), assisted by Carter Page (7). Shortly after that work, Page teamed up with a Gazprom executive, Sergei Yatsenko, to found Global Energy Capital in a building connected to Trump Tower via bridge (8).
Also in September of 2008, when Chubais join the international advisory board of JP Morgan Chase, Chubais was appointed General Manager of RUSNANO (9). On the supervisory board of Rusnano was Alexander Torshin (10).

Rusnano and Schwarzenegger
Sarah Palin ultimately failed her bid for the White House, so Sergey Kislyak turned to another US politician, Arnold Schwarzenegger, at the time Governor of California.
For those unfamiliar, Schwarzenegger made his first trip to Russian in 1986 for the filming of “Red Heat”, where he met up with Russian weightlifter, Yury Vaslov. Vaslov, along with his friend, Vladimir Dubinin, formed the USSR’s Federation of Bodybuilding, or IFBB (1). While Vaslov ended up joining the Russian state Duma, Dubinin would continue to connect to Schwarzenegger through the Arnold Classic in Ohio, where Dubinin would gift Schwarzenegger busts of Russia leaders, including Stalin in 1995 and Putin in 2009 (2)(3).
In 1999, Russian action star Alexander Nevsky, called the “Russian Arnold Schwarzenegger,” gifted Schwarzenegger a memoir signed by Gorbachev, whom Nevsky knew personally (4)(5). Soon after Schwarzenegger teamed up with US politicos that once ushered Russia’s Yeltsin into power to push him to California governor (6).
In Oct 2009, amid the world financial crisis, Schwarzenegger was set to close California’s only standing Russian settlement, Fort Ross, until approached by Sergey Kislyak, who suggested Russian assistance to finance the park (7). A month later, Medvedev announced Moscow’s own answer to Silicon Valley Skokovo, and appointed Viktor Vekselberg to lead the project (8). Ultimately it was Vekselberg’s Renova Group that financed Fort Ross, the deal signed on Oct 21, 2010 following a keynote speech by Schwarzenegger and Kislyak at an event held at Vekselberg’s Skolkovo, Russia, an event sponsored by Rusnano (10). And, as it turns out, Skolkovo was a suspected spy facility.
As Obama’s effort to reboot diplomatic relations [with Russia] sputtered, federal officials began raising alarms about the Skolkovo Foundation’s ties to Putin.
“The foundation may be a means for the Russian government to access our nation’s sensitive or classified research, development facilities and dual-use technologies” (9)
In attendance at the infamous meeting in Skolkovo was Carter Page’s father, Alan Page, as well as Arkady Dvorkovich (10). When Carter Page founded Global Energy Capital in 2008, he listed his father’s home as the address (11). In 2013, Page got caught up in a Russian spy ring (16), and yet, unfazed, in 2016 emailed Trump’s campaign boasting he could arrange a meeting in Moscow between Trump and Putin (17). Carter Page was introduced to the Trump campaign by Ed Cox (19), who’s wife’s sister, Julie Nixon Eisenhower, sits on the board for the Center for the National Interest (18). Rudy Giuliani once worked at Ed Cox’s law firm in the 70‘s (20), and, more recently, in 2005, Bracewell Giuliani lobbied for Ed Cox’s Houston-based Nobel Energy (21)(22). Then, in July 2016 amid Trump’s campaign, Carter Page flew to Russia and met with Dvorkovich (12).
Also in attendance was “Russia’s favorite Congressman" Dana Rohrabacher (10). Two years later the FBI would approach Rohrabacher warning Russian spies were trying to recruit him (25).
Also in attendance was Alexander Torshin as well as Preston Kline (10). Kline introduced Torshin to the NRA’s David Keene (13) soon after, in May 2011 (14). David Keene also sits on the board of the Center for the National Interest alongside Richard Burt and Henry Kissinger (15). After that, Torshin often appeared at the NRA’s annual convention and claimed he knew Donald Trump through the NRA (26). Torshin’s protege, Maria Butina, took a picture with Scott Walker at the 2015 NRA convention and met with Walker again when Walker announced his presidential bid. Shortly after Butina met with Scott Walker, Russian oligarch Len Blavatnik’s Access Industries donated to Scott Walker’s political operation and $1.5 million to a pro-Walker Super PAC (29). Torshin also chatted with Don Jr at the 2016 NRA convention (28).
Also in attendance was Viktor Vekselberg’s cousin, Andrew Intrater (10), who later donated to Donald Trump’s inaugural fund (30).
On that same trip to Skolkovo, Schwarzenegger met with Medvedev who offered him the mayorship of Moscow (23 @1:23). Though that never came to pass, in 2014 Schwarzenegger starred in the film, “Sabotage”, that was financed by Mikhail Lesin, founder of Russia’s propaganda outlet, RT (24).

Richard Burt, Sergey Kislyak, and Alexander Torshin infiltrate US politics
In early 2011, Donald Trump discussed running for president with Steve Bannon, but they both agreed 2016 would be better (1). Then in May, Sarah Palin paid Trump a visit at Trump Tower (2). Sarah Palin became an early endorser of Donald Trump, appearing at a Trump rally to give her endorsement just weeks before the Iowa caucus (13). Here’s Palin spouting out pro-Putin talking points in 2014 (14).
In 2012, Kissinger, whom Putin considers a trusted foreign policy adviser, visited Vladimir Putin to discuss US and Russia elections (3).
In August 2014, Rand Paul named Richard Burt and the president of the Center for the National Interest’s Dimitri Simes as key foreign policy advisers (4). Two months later Rand Paul delivered a speech at the Center for the National Interest’s annual dinner (5). It didn’t take much time before Rand Paul started spouting Russian talking points (6), as well as his father, Ron Paul (7). In 2018 Rand Paul traveled to Moscow and hand delivered a personal note from Trump to Putin and invited Russian senators to meet with the US congress in the US “or elsewhere” (11). The Russian senators then asked for assistance in the Maria Butina case and suggested they may use the invite to protest her arrest (12).
The following February, 2015, Simes met with Putin in Moscow. In May, the Center for the National Interest arranged for Alexander Torshin and his protege, Maria Butina, to visit with US government officials (8). On June 12th, the Center for the National Interest published Maria Butina’s op-ed discussing that only a Republican can improve relations with Russia (9). Around the same time, Simes emailed Butina about connecting one of his top donors with Russian officials (10).

The Russians and the Trump Campaign: The Beginnings
The following month, July 2015, Butina attended the Freedom Fest where she was called on my Donald Trump shortly after he announced his candidacy for president. Asked about sanctions, Trump promised, “We’ll get along with Putin” (1). That same month, Rob Goldstone, publicist to a Russian pop star who’s father is an oligarch, emailed Trump’s personal assistant about possibly hooking Trump up with a personal meeting with Putin (10). Within that same same summer, Donald Trump met up with Michael Flynn for the first time (2). At the time, Flynn was seemingly romantically involved with an accused Russian spy, Svetlana Lokhova, who had access to Russia’s GRU files (3).
In August, Dana Rohrabacher met up with Maria Butina and Alexander Torshin in St. Petersburg (4).
On Dec 2, 2015 Flynn visited Sergey Kislyak at his home (5). Shortly after, on Dec 8th, a delegation of NRA officials, arranged by David Keene, met with Alexander Torshin and Maria Butina at Moscow while Flynn, at the same time, delivered a paid speech at an RT Gala in Moscow and sat at the same table as Vladimir Putin. Officials notice after the RT Gala an increased communications between Flynn and Kislyak and British intelligence agencies detecte suspicious interactions between Russan and Trump aides that they pass to US intellgence (6). Recently reported, Maria Butina also updated her progress to Kislyak as well (7).
Shortly after the NRA delegation returned to the states, Ed Cox (connected to the Center for the National Interest) introduced Carter Page to Trump’s campaign manager at the time, Corey Lewandowski (8). Page then emails Trump’s campaign boasting that he could arrange a meeting in Moscow between Trump and Putin (9). After meeting with Lewandowki in January, Lewandowski steered him to Sam Clovis who ultimately hired Page to Trump’s National Security team (8).

The Center for the National Interest and the Trump Campaign
Then on March 14, 2016 Jared Kushner attended a luncheon hosted by the Center for the National Interest where he met with Dimitri Simes and Henry Kissinger (1). That same day George Papadopoulos met with the infamous Professor Mifsud in Italy who would later reveal Russia had “dirt” on Clinton in the form of thousands of emails. Then, on March 31st during Trump’s first National Security meeting that also included Jeff Sessions, Papadopoulos revealed he could arrange a meeting between Trump and Putin (2). Though Trump never ended up meeting with Putin, less than three weeks later on April 19, Donald Trump’s childhood friend, Ron Lauder, did (3).
A little more than a week later, the Center for the National Interest hosted Trump first speech on foreign policy at the Mayflower Hotel. Richard Burt and George Papadopoulos worked on that speech, where Trump promised a “good deal with Russia” (4). It was at that event that Jared Kushner and Jeff Sessions first met Sergey Kislyak (5). Sessions would again meet with Kislyak, this time with Carter Page and JD Gordon, on July 18 during the Republican National Convention. And yet again in September Session met Kislyak in his Senate office (6).
Burt also attended two dinners with Jeff Sessions while a lobbyist for Gazprom (7).
In May, 2016, a political operative connected to the NRA emailed Jeff Sessions and Rick Dearborn for advice arranging a meeting with Trump and Putin, with first contact to be made at the NRA’s 2016 convention. Dearborn forwarded a similar email stemming from Christian causes to Jared Kushner (11).
During the 2016 NRA national convention, Alexander Torshin ultimately met up with Don Jr and Maria Butina delivered a speech to the governor and lieutenant governor of Kentucky (8). Butina also later dined with Don Jr on a separate occasion (9) and went on a Styx date with JD Gordon from Trump’s National Security Team (10).
Then in December Jared Kushner joined Michael Flynn to see Kislyak at Trump Tower where they discussed “setting up a secret and secure communications channel” (6). Afterward, Flynn kept communicating with Kislyak (12), negotiating by Kushner’s direction (13), in violation of the Logan Act. Flynn would eventually enter a plea deal for lying about those negotiations to the FBI (12).
At Kislyak's request, the head of VEB, Sergei Gorkov, visited Kushner at Trump Tower in Dec 2016, where he gifted Kushner art and a "bag of dirt" from Kushner's ancestral land of Belarus (14). The two discussed Kushner Companies, though VEB was under US sanctions. Previously, Gorkov led Sberbank at the time Sberbank sponsored Miss Universe 2013 in Moscow (15). While there, Herman Gref, the CEO of Sberbank, hosted a dinner for Trump (16). Immediately afterwards Trump started tweeting about a Trump Tower Moscow (17). Then, in early 2014, a former Sberbank employee with access to GRU files, Svetlana Lokhova, met with Michael Flynn at Cambridge University, birthplace of Cambridge Analytica (18). Immediately after Carter Page flew to Moscow amid Trump's presidential campaign, Page traveled to Cambridge University and met up with Paul Manafort-protege, Vin WWeber (19)(20).

Russia and the Trump Administration
On February 2nd, Trump was scheduled to meet Alexander Torshin at the National Prayer Breakfast, but the meeting was canceled when it was revealed Torshin had ties to organized crime . Dana Rohrabacher, however, still dined with Torshin and referred to him as “conservatives’ favorite Russian” (13).
On May 9, 2017, Trumped fired Comey over the “Russia thing" (1). That same day, Sergey Lavrov met with Rex Tillerson (2). According to her plea deal, Butina helped the Trump administration select Rex Tillerson as his first Secretary of State (3). While head of ExxonMobil, Tillerson won the Order of Friendship personally from Vladimir Putin for signed a deal with Rosneft’s Igor Sechin. Exxonmobil was ultimately fine $2 million for that deal for breaking US sanctions (4).
On May 10, the day after Trump fired Comey, Trump met with Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Kislyak in the Oval Office (2), where he admited he fired “nutcase" James Comey to ease pressure form investigation (8) and revealed classified information honed by Israel (9). After the meeting ended and the doors opened to the press, Lavrov and Kislyak were gone and instead, Henry Kissinger accompanied Trump (2).
At some point, Kushner delivered a Russian-sanctions relief plan approved by Putin to Tillerson himself. The plan was originally delivered from Kirill Dimitriev, head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, to Kushner’s friend, Rick Gerson (5). At one point, Stephen Schwartzman of Blackstone Group sat on the advisory board to the Russian Direct Investment Fund at it's inception in 2011 (6). Since 2013, Blackstone Group loaned Kushner Companies more than $400 million over multiple projects (7). Also on the board of Blackstone is Jacob Rothschild (10), who’s son, Nathanial, is business partners with Oleg Deripaska and owns a major stake in Rusal (11).
On January, 2019, the Trump administration lifted sanctions on Rusal as well as two other firms connected to Oleg Deripaska (12).
